About

My practice is based on the premise that any issue presented in therapy has deep emotional and psychological roots. At times these roots are recognized; mostly, not. The clients who achieve the highest degree of success in terms of resolution of presenting issues, personal growth, life satisfaction, and relationship enhancement are those who are willing to overcome resistance and emotional discomfort in order to root out the painful, dysfunctional origins of their presented issues, The courage, persistence, and resilience displayed during their therapeutic journey serve them well.
My basic approach to assisting clients to resolve their issues is to develop a picture of who they could be without their struggles, and offer pathways toward achieving that state. The process involves creating a warm, safe, accepting environment, conceptualizing and addressing core issues, and maintaining a hopeful, supportive and challenging stance.
Struggling with life challenges and difficult emotional condition can be lonely, disheartening, and depleting. If you are searching for a companion/guide for your healing journey who will do what it takes to earn trust, provide safety and work to discern your therapeutic needs and paths forward with as much clarity as possible, feel free to contact me.
